Cooking classes in Rome


I'm heading to Rome soon, and am hoping to find some cooking classes to take. I've already investigated, and they are unfortunately booked solid while I'll be there; I've also contacted Faith Wallingham, but she only appears to be doing tours while I'm there, not hands-on lessons.

Has anyone taken any lessons that they enjoyed? In English, ideally, as I speak not a lick of Italian.

  1. I can recommend Daniela:

    She's great, speaks English and combines the class with a tour of the Testaccio market.

      I was going to point you to too. I've never used any of the services but read the blog frequently . . . .

      please report back if you found success (I realize this is an old post)! I've been itching to get back to Italy and a great cooking class would be a great excuse!

        Thanks so much! But I don't do cooking classes. On my 'to do' list is to write up a post on all the different options on doing a day cooking class in Rome since it's a question that pops up frequently.

          Ah - sorry didn't mean to misrepresent.

          It must have been the recent Bonci pizza post that has gotten my whole "I need to go to Rome and cook" confusion going!
